A wreath has been laid at the spot where the Tudor warship, the Mary Rose, sank in The Solent nearly 500 years ago. It marks the opening day of a new museum in Portsmouth dedicated to the ship and the 380 soldiers and crew who lost their lives fighting the French in 1545.

The new museum, which opens to the public tomorrow reunites the wreck of the Mary Rose with thousands of its artefacts.
